Book Review: Fed Up by Colin Lancaster
As a dumbstruck world is trying to come to grasp with what arguably has to be the most severe onslaught of a pandemic since the Spanish Flu in 1917, the social, psychological and economic costs of this unpredictable event have been, putting it mildly, incalculable. That said, Fed Up by Colin Lancaster does an honorable job of broaching a subject that is still touchy despite being, by now, a familiar one. A confluence of forces related to financial markets nearly collapsed the economy as we knew it.
Fed Up by Colin Lancaster describes the experiences of a global macro trader as he attempts to survive the greatest market panic ever seen since the Great Depression. The author provides readers with an overview of the decadence of an exuberant market bubble to the depths of a market crash and the very beginnings of a market recovery. This book offers readers a close look at trading activity, letting them experience the rush of the markets. Additionally, there are also financial guidance given in the book. This book depicts the struggle of a man working towards his own peak while facing moral dilemmas.
This book gives the readers a glimpse of life as a trader as he tries to balance his personal values with the tainted morals of the world around him. It’s an entertaining look at the new players on the market and it shines light on the biggest policy issues the United States is facing today. From the perspective of a global macro trader, Fed Up by Colin Lancaster is a riveting account that reveals the impact of the 2020 crash on the markets. What’s impressive is how diplomatically the author dives into the juicy details, refusing to succumb to the sweet intoxication of finger-pointing and dogmatism.
Fed Up is a great book that makes a complex topic easy to understand in our current world situation. Colin Lancaster understands the MMT and why it is danger as a way to manage our economy. The steps we can take in order to achieve or continue to achieve freedom, regardless of what happen in the macroeconomic manner. The information in the book is organized and well written. This is a complex topic and Colin Lancaster wove the current pandemic within the current economic state brilliantly. If you want to start understanding what it going on with the Federal Reserve and Treasury and how it impacts you, pick up this book and start learning.
However, the book’s main point is not a discussion of policy responses to pandemics. It gives an engaging view of how the ‘literally unprecedented’ shocks which have engulfed markets indicate an era of depression is about to begin, as well as how people might mitigate the effects of this coming depression on their own lives. Colin Lancaster is Hedge Fund Macro Trader and a smart man who manages to tell an interesting and informative story without resorting to hyperbole.
This book offers a really intriguing look at the pandemic, our response to it, and what we can expect to happen in the future in light of that response. It’s not light or easy reading, but it is definitely worthwhile if you’d like to gain more understanding of what is going on and how you can offset some of the craziness from the world around you.
